Nice job. Just need a pic of the whole drivetrain or make a before/after if you have the old config in a shot. You won't change your mind and go back. :)
I just came across a solid deal on some RF Next SL cranks...thankfully I'm not in the market to justify the expense, but it's the best I've seen in awhile...

Fantastic 4 / 2015 Road Construction on 135 between 46 and Brownstown
« Last post by Nate Hawkins on March 04, 2015, 01:40:58 PM »
INDOT will be doing construction on 135 in a few spots in 2015 between SR 46 and Brownstown. The first of these projects will be the bridge over Gnaw Bone Creek.

BROWN COUNTY, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation closed State Road 135 at Gnaw Bone Creek in Brown County at noon today for a bridge replacement project. The north-south highway will remain closed for 60 days.
A state highway detour routes traffic around the construction site via S.R. 46, I-65 and S.R. 58.
Schutt-Lookabill is INDOT’s contractor for this $746,792 project located just south of S.R. 46 in Washington Township. The Indianapolis company will replace the S.R. 135/Gnaw Bone Creek bridge’s superstructure. This includes removal and replacement of the bridge deck and rails, repairs at bridge piers and new pavement approaches.
The S.R. 135 Gnaw Bone Creek bridge is a 3-span continuous reinforced concrete structure—123 feet in length with 32 feet of clear roadway side-to-side.
Contract completion date is April 30.

If you usually take SR 46 to SR 135 to access Gnaw Bone Camp or Nebo Ridge, you can take Valley Branch Road to detour around this bridge work.

If other projects affect trail access throughout the year, feel free to post here.
Town Run / Park Hours: Dawn to Dusk
« Last post by Paul_Arlinghaus on March 04, 2015, 12:23:48 PM »
Indy Parks as asked me to remind riders that Town Run is closed at dusk. Night riding is not permitted. They have been warning those in the park after hours but will issue tickets if night riding continues. This will be less of an issue with the time changing this week.
[/size]If you would like to be able to ride at Town Run at night, you have the opportunity to express that at the Indy Park's Master Planing meetings. (see earlier post). We have the opportunity to increase the amount of available recreational resources, just by adding a few hours of night riding.  We would like to see a dawn till 10:00PM policy.[/color]
Have a few things that I'd like to sell, listed biggest to smallest.

- 2005 Specialized Transition Comp Tri/TT bike.  Polished alum color.  Mix of Dura Ace/Ultegra drivetrain and brakes.  Zipp 404 wheels. Size is 56cm.  Great shape.  If you already have some sweet race wheels, I'd be willing to sell everything minus the Zipps for half the asking price.
$1,500 ($750 minus wheelset)

- Formula R1 brakeset. 160mm front/rear.  Comes with rotors, all bolts, an IS/post adapter, all ready to install and ride.  Hose lengths are 81cm front, 143cm rear.

- SRAM X01 11spd trigger shifter.  For 1x systems.  This thing is almost new...literally 4 or 5 rides on it.  I'm just a Shimano trigger guy, or grip shift if SRAM.

- SRAM X0 10spd trigger shifter.  Again, practically new.

- Cane Creek 110 headset.  For 1 1/8in straight headtubes.  Black.  Includes CC interlocking spacers. Used, but no doubt lots of good life remaining.  Possibly the best HS available. 

- Problem Solvers MisMatch 1.0 Right-only.  This little doodad allows you to remove the clamp on SRAM trigger shifters and integrate them with Shimano I-spec brakes, if you're so inclined.

Have pictures of everything.  Just ask...along with any questions you might have.  Email is

The Death March T-shirt is only guaranteed if you are registered by tomorrow night (March 5). Also, the price goes up - so get your registration in now!
